Clarification on Derpibooru's policies regarding traced images

Not necessarily regarding tracing, but does Derpibooru have any policy against the somewhat severe editing of a dead artists work?

Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

Same as for any other artist: Don't make it into something they'd probably hate, at least not without rendering it rather unrecognizable as originally coming from them.

Yes, but also a specific uploader. Generally this isn’t a bother and I assume everything is on the up and up.

But when I saw this post,
https://derpibooru.org/2175919
I realized that the uploader was taking different pieces of art from different artists and editing them in the same manner.

Again I don’t think it’s a large issue but I did some looking before coming here and that’s when I noticed that the artist of this image had been missing from the internet for over a year.

Since ideas of diversity and inclusion are these days more heavily tied to politics I don’t know if it’s right to take these pieces of artwork without asking the artist if they’re comfortable with somebody editing them in this manner.

The reason I didn’t report in the first place was because I wasn’t sure if this was a policy that Derp had. If it’s not a policy that the site has then I can’t report it right?

If you don't know what rule to use, just use "Other" and explain the problem that you see in the text field, but in general what you're talking about is Rule #1 — If you report an image for Rule #1 and we disagree we'll reply to you and talk with you about why we ruled the way we did. Your question has nothing to do with tracing — please PM me if you still have questions, and please report the image that you think is a problem.

If you consider any of their drawings to be traces or recolors of your work, please report them. If they are derivative of your work (traces or recolors) then your copyright is retained and we will take them down if you would like. In the meantime I am still working on contacting the other artist.
